    Hey guys,

    plasti dip is a PEELABLE rubber coating,so how come people use it to seal things or paint things like latex. Would it not just peel off whatever it was sprayed on?

    It does not peel off that easy. People even use it to paint their cars with. While no where near as durable as paint, for a quick color change, it can fit the bill.

    It grabs foam pretty good.

    What type of foam? Because i would imagine it would grab memory and bed foam well but how about eva.

    because i plan on doing a batman arkham knight armour build and i'm going to be using the thick eva foam mats

    It does really well on Eva foam. I always heat mine during the building process and that seems to help seal everything.

    It does stick to Eva pretty good. Make sure that that the spray gets around the edge to the back. Some people seal the Eva with pva glue or modge podge after the heat seal and before the plasti-dip. It saves on plasti-dip layers.
